The most beautiful feedback...


I received a comment in one of my posts that are just worth it mentioning. It's from Mary, one of my collectors, and I've read it and read it over again because it just makes me feel happy.:

Danita, I've been meaning to write on this Blog for ages. I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer last year in late November. I discovered your art while I was off from work during my chemotherapy, and as you know, I've been buying quite a bit. Even when I don't buy, I LOVE watching out for the new stuff you're doing. It always brings me great joy! But I did want to share that the last painting I bought ("Trust," with the girl putting her head inside the wolf's mouth) is probably my favorite because it reminds me of how I trusted in God and the love of my friends and the expertise of my doctors -- and even though I've had my head in the wolf's mouth for the past year, I have come through this stronger, happier, and healthier. My last test showed no evidence of Cancer. Hooray! Thank you for all of your beautiful uplifting art! Mary

I'm so happy for her because she's now Cancer free. And I'm happy because my art helped her go through her illness and brought joy to her life. Congratulations Mary!!! I'm so glad to have helped!
